W O Y W W # 49

Good morning! The lovely Julia over at Stamping Ground hosts WOYWW or 'What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday', I have been joining in for a couple of weeks now and am totally hooked! It's a great idea, to be able to pop over to other bloggers to see what they are working on and also a nosy at their stash, lol!


My desk this week is once again a bit on the messy side! I am in the middle of making a mini album and have been busy covering my new Papermania scalloped one, with the lovely new Hampstead papers, which my mate Karen kindly gave me. They are lush! As you can probably tell by now, I don't really like parting with my papers, so to make a mini album is the perfect way to hold onto them, lol! Also there are my three fav craft products, my Fiskar's trimmer, my Cropodile and my Momento inkpads. My large box of Jelli Tots, must have every colour now and the usual suspects, double sided tape, ruler and scissors.


The above box contains most of my ribbons, I recently gave it a complete overhaul and they are all nice and tidy! It won't last, I will be rummaging in their again later! I tend to go for the feel of a ribbon rather than a colour, the SU ones are my fav's at the moment, I have quite a collection going.



I was asked by several ladies, to show some of what is living in my sixteen 12 x 12 boxes. Well as a tease, I have opened up one of them today, lol! As you can see they are in a bit of a jumble, thats my next project, lol! My friend Karen keeps threatening to come on over and sort them for me, may take her up on her offer, as I never seem to have the time! Box # 1 - SU cardstock 'Brights' pack, SU paper packs x 3, October Afternoon and My Mind's Eye Papers. Various colours of Bazzill Cardstock and some vellums.

Finally, I know I have rambled on enough, but I just wanted to show you this picture, one of my little Orchid's has got some flowers! I have been waiting for two years, so had to take a photo. Also Georgia's little cactus has started to flower, they are so pretty, don't you agree?



Enjoy your day, I have to do my DT cards and then go groom my little Lion's Head bunny who looks more like an afro at the moment, I have to brush him everyday, which I just love doing! his sister is a short-haired Lion's Head, they are so totally different, will share a photo of them again soon, if they will keep still long enough!

Take care

luv and hugs

Heidi
